It sounds like you doubt this.
Go on, tell me about all his successes in the past 5 years or so. What players has he made better because of his stellar defensive play/captaincy? Or, has the case more often been that he needed a certain defenseman paired with him to improve his play?
Has he been a quality power play quarterback?
Is he leading by example on the ice?
Or does he just have an unmistakable stench of losing that trails him everywhere?
No doubt he wasn't playing well last year or the year before. But really, this year he's played well. You have an agenda and it shows.
Since coming to the Blues...
32 GP/-17...that should have been a sign.
In seasons, including this one where he has not played much, he is -38 in 66 games.
That is absolutely atrocious, no matter how over-rated you may or may not feel +/- is.
Point taken. Too lazy to look up the rest of the team, but oh well.
